Moodle has special features that are student/teacher friendly.
Educators can post up assignments on this website, so that
students would have easy access to find out what they are
required to do for the course, which students can keep track of
their grades. Moodle also has chat room, so classes can actually
be held online. The navigation tools are quite confusing at first,
but it just takes getting used to.

Delicious is actually one of my favorite tools I’ve learned
from this course! I’m so thankful now that I can organize
all my important websites, instead of copy-pasting URLs
into Word Documents. Delicious makes things so much
easier, and it makes my life a lot more delicious!

Firefox is a free web browser that has many features
from searching in fast speed, simple customization,
and so much more! I recommend everyone to give
Firefox a try. I found it very user friendly. I think it is
even faster than Mac’s Safari!

Google has always been my number one search engine,
because of all the many results it generates. It is actually
one of the most commonly used search engines. Google
has great applications that is so easy to utilize. You can also
create your iGoogle page, which often reminds me of the
Dashboard Widgets on the Mac.

Slideshare is a really useful tool to load up Powerpoint
presentations to the internet, so teachers can have easy
access to view your presentation. It’s free to make a
Slideshare account, as well. It’s also really quick and simple
to load a presentation into your Slideshare account. I
would recommend everyone to try this tool out, because it
may come in handy someday.

Prezi is just simply awesome! It allows you to create such a
beautifully fascinating presentation to “WOW” your crowd!
On your first try, it may take a lot of time trying to figure
out how to create a presentation, because it is pretty
technical. But, once you gain more experience with Prezi,
you’ll be able to leave your audience with fireworks in their
eyes, because it’s just that awesome!

Jing is amazing! This is one of my personal favorite Tech-
Tools of all time, because it makes things so much easier
when trying to copy pictures from the internet that cannot
be copied. You could also record what you are doing on
your desktop and save it as a file. This is a really awesome
Tech-Tool that everybody should try!

Picnik provides a very quick and easy way to edit your
photos. I have learned to love this site so much. It has many
wonderful editing features that you can experiment with on
your photos. This makes photo editing really fun! I would
most definitely tell everyone to use it! It’s not as great as
Photoshop, but it does a great job for something that’s free!
